The weekend opened early Friday evening with one of my dad’s go-to jokes. The one I’ve heard 100 times, but that everyone else finds hilarious when hearing it the first time. “I always tell my kids, follow your dreams . . . or you’ll end up working in a bank.”
The parents, siblings and friends gathered for dinner at The Mark restaurant on Eddy Street burst out laughing. Most of the men sitting there work in banks. So we kids saw the humor in it, too — even my 11-year-old brother.
Notre Dame hosted another Junior Parents Weekend in February. Better known as JPW, the three-day event is a University tradition in which parents of junior-year students visit campus for a glimpse of their son’s or daughter’s life at Notre Dame.
